    If you like the powerhouse more than it's probably a reasonable trade from a financial standpoint. I personally wouldn't make the trade. I've played the Powerhouse 1000 in a couple different band settings (was at the rehearsal/gig spot so convienient) and did not like it at all... but it's your ears and gear... :)

    I've seen a lot of 1x15's go for right at $300 on ebay, so anything less than that is good. I've never owned a powerhouse 1000, but I did have a Mesa 2-15 cab, and that was THE most difficult thing to load in and out of my car. I believe the 1000 is about the same size as that 2-15; I traded it in on a 4-10; I wouldn't trade the other way.

    The 1000 is actually the same size as a 610. Its fairly managable alone due to the handle placement, rails and tilt back casters, and cake with another person helping.
